Talking About Great Simplicity
One very nice thing about this souvenir from United States is that it invites the viewer to ask questions, particularly about how Nebraska came to be and how its people have been forging a living in this largely wild and undeveloped state. One thing that kind of signifies this is the use of the light purple color, which isn't readily found in nature and seems to represent the certain yet abstract human element that settlers to this land brought with them to foster a culture and claim to a new environment.
Its colors are subtle and are presented as such which seems to denote a simpler time in which people try to craft a life amidst a great deal of nature derived freedom and open space. Perhaps this is best symbolized by the passing train, which is steaming along the landscape as a sense of prosperity and growth.
Nebraska and its People
Because of its geographical centralized location in the country, Nebraska hosts many different ethnicities. It was the mandatory road for people from the East coast heading West in search of the gold presumably found in California. Earlier in history, the territory was widely crossed by the Native Americans such as Sioux, Pona, Omaha and Pawnee.
Interestingly, over the decades the Native Americans have been recognized as bearers of a moral authority in the region to the extent of having now their own universities where their kids obtain their college degrees. Nebraska also welcomed many German and Czech immigrants in the late Nineteenth century and the beginning of the Twentieth century. Also, many African Americans found their home in Nebraska in the Nineteeth century when they migrated in huge numbers seeking new opportunities in other regions of the great America. All in all , this is a great travel souvenir to take back home.
